`Clean as a whistle` Bolt aims to renew faith in athletics following drug scandal
London: After fellow Jamaican athletes failed crucial drug tests, six-time Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt has assured that he wants to help restore faith in the sport, adding that he would work even harder to help the country and the sport.
According to BBC, Bolt revealed that he was even more focused and ready to do better to inspire people and show them that it was possible, insisting that he never took drugs along with admitting that more care needed to be exercised as an athlete now that there were many things on the banned list.
Bolt said that he was tested just day before Thursday and it was all part of the routine and added that he was fast because he had a talent.
Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson recently tested positive, as did American Tyson Gay, the fastest man in the world this year, the report said.
